Default The Newest Bonneville: "Fiery Shadow"

Here are some pictures of the latest Bonneville to join the club. His name is “Fiery Shadow.” He is my second Bonneville. I drove a gray 1993 SE Bonneville for 8 years and 9 months before selling that one and upgrading to this newer 2002 Black SSEi Bonneville. My old Bonneville had almost nothing added to it but it ran great. I put a good CD player in it with USB and SD Card slots from Best Buy. I bought that car with 88,900 miles on it in October of 1998. I sold it in July of 2007 for $1,700 and it had 167,000 miles. I put on about 78,100 miles on that Bonneville before selling it. I decided it was time to upgrade. (Most people upgrade cars on average every 19 months; it took me 105 months!) I wanted another Bonneville for sure as my last car gave me minimal problems (couple alternators, water pump, master cylinder, brake lines). I decided to buy this Black SSEi with 37,000 miles on it July 7, 2007. I love it! I have added the following modifications since I bought the car: (things in bold are not shown on pictures yet, but they will be coming within the next 15 days)
2 Rock Chip Repairs
Immediate Oil Change & Inspection
Get Sunroof to Close Correctly (Bolts loose)
Window Tint (Windshield Too- 15% 8 inch strip)
Smoke VentVisors
"Supercharged" Brake Light Cover
"Bonneville" Key Chains
Bluetooth Car Kit
Skull Neon Car Pedals
Custom Rear and Front Dash Covers
Owners Manual from Ebay Red Neon LED’*
Red Turning Arrows
2 License Plate Frames
Custom Seat Covers and Seat Belt Pads
Hood Scoops (Paint also)
Cell Phone Holder and Charger
Red Dash Kit
6 Port Holes
8 pc. Rocker Panels
Chrome Fender Trim

3 Seatbelt Type * Shoulder Pads
Steering Wheel Cover
Sun Visor and Back Floor Mats
Red Racing Stripe
Front & Rear Light Covers (Smoke – 20%)
Step Cover/Plates



What else can I do to this bad boy for looks? I want some performance modifications that are musts also because after I get the interior/exterior mods done then it is on to performance! Let me know what you think of my car! I do truly think Black is the way to go! Thanks for your help. By the way I love this forum. I stumbled across it almost a month ago.

Looks like your host doesn't like hotlinking. Can you upload them to a photobucket account?

These have me worried.

What is up with portholes on Bonnevilles lately?

I notice you're getting headlight covers....? I didn't think these were available for the 2000+. Do you have any kind of link to where you got them?

Ya, no portholes guys, c'mon, they aren't Buicks. Personally, for a cleaner look, I'd take off the fake hood scoops and red seat covers.

Otherwise, its ok.

Go to bulk sheets under headlights or taillights. You must cut them yourself. I'm going to get 20%. They have a photo gallery as well to look at the 20% on different cars. Here are some night pics that I added:

Awesome, thanks for the link. I'm not going with smoke, but I'll order the clear sheets to protect the headlights and the paint on the rocker panels and the rear door cladding.

Have you driven the car without the scoops on? I sometimes think I can feel stuff like that slowing down the cars I drive. I like the car, though. Overall, it looks good.

Yes I drove the car for 5 weeks without the scoops. Just got them put on today. I like them so far. Thanks!
